Superfund Research Program Multiproject Center Grants (P42)
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is announcing the continuation of the Superfund Research Program (SRP) Centers. This program supports coordinated, multiproject, multi- and interdisciplinary Centers that address the broad, complex health and environmental issues that arise from hazardous waste sites. SRP Center grants support problem-based, solution-oriented research Centers that consist of multiple, integrated projects representing the biomedical and environmental science and engineering disciplines. The Center cores also are tasked with administrative, community engagement, research translation, research support, and training functions. Per NIEHS legislative authority, only Higher Education Institutions may apply. Letters of intent are due by November 19, 2018, and applications are due by December 19, 2018.

New Focus Area
Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs)
Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs)
The objective of this focus area is to provide an overview of the current understanding of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), particularly perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS), regarding their major historical and current uses; scientific information about their sources, chemistry and analysis, potential human exposure and associative adverse health outcomes, and environmental fate and transport; and progress in site investigation techniques and cleanup alternatives for environmental media affected by PFASs at levels of concern.
